My System Specs


Thanks for the review, Sky!
I can't agree with any of the compromises in this notebook... I'd easily "give up" 200g of weight and an extra half centimetre of thickness to get more USB ports, better cooling, and a keyboard I can actually type a report on.
Two USB would be useless to my research group. 1 USB accessory for device under test, mouse, ...wait where do you put your USB key? I know hubs exist but the powered ones are annoying since you need to run another power cable.

Assuming they still exist, can you contrast this review with a big thick notebook like a mobile workstation or gaming PC that has 10 minutes battery life at load?
